War tribunal favored

It's Your Call

March 06, 1991

Since Iraq invaded Kuwait last August, there have been reports of atrocities -- from the rape, torture and killing of Kuwaiti citizens, to the allied bombing of Iraqi civilians, to the subsequent vengeful attacks on Iraqi soldiers.

Of 373 readers of The Evening Sun and other callers to SUNDIAL, 335, or 89 percent, said that as part of the cease-fire, a war-crimes tribunal should be established to investigate these reported atrocities.

Of 371 callers, 339, or 91 percent, said that all acts of barbarism on all sides in the war should not be forgiven and forgotten.

"It's Your Call" represents a sampling of opinions from certain segments of the community, but it is not balanced demographically, as would be done in a scientific public opinion poll.
